    Hello All,

    I just purchased a used Fender P/J bass (passive). It has duncan quarter pounders in it.

    When I turn both pickups up full, the output sounds completely hollow. If I turn either pickup down a click or two, the bottom end returns.

    Does this sound correct?

    I compared the wiring against the Seymour Duncan wiring diagram, and it matches.

    Thanks for any insight you can offer.

  2. May be different polarity in the p'ups themselves and complying with SD sketches may not work for all brands.

    .................best to get out the soldering iron and see for yourself.

    Well, I reversed the jazz pickup and that fixed it.

    Hmmm..

    Thanks.
